Two SUPCO Justices Will Serve On Facial Recognition Panel

Aug 30, 2013

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has named two former Ohio Supreme Court justices to a commission that will study law enforcement use of facial recognition software.

Democrat Yvette McGee Brown and Republican Evelyn Stratton will serve on the panel with a county prosecutor, a sheriff and a police chief. DeWine failed to include a representative from the The American Civil Liberties Union, which had asked for a commission seat. Since June, local and state law enforcement officers have used the software several thousand times. Critics have called the technology intrusive. DeWine wants the group to review whether Ohio should have additional protocols in place.
